Saint, since you asked, I will explain. Metro, I believe this pertains to your thread, since it may or may not lend credibility to what I said about
About 4 months ago, a voice inside my head said to pick up the bible. This was a surprise to me, since I've always believed in God, but thought the
bible was difficult to read, and frankly, boring. I've tried to read it before, but only really read Revelation with any interest.
To my surprise, once I started reading it, starting from the beginning, it began to make sense to me, and was like a good book that I couldn't put
down. I got so into it, that I began to go to bible study and began to attend a local church. But a vision that came into me was a vision of a future
where all come to the same belief, that God exists and we have the control over our lives. And this didn't coincide with what the church was
teaching, which was if your not saved and baptized, God doesn't love you. I started to debate with the pastor, something he didn't like at all. But
it was like information that was exploding inside of me, and I couldn't keep it in.
Then on Jan 26th, 2006, I had a profound dream. I was given a treasure map, and after finding the treasure, I found a wooden lamb that was hollow
inside, which was full of uncut, natural diamonds. Suddenly, I was outside the house where the treasure was, and wings began to grow on my back. I
flew over the ocean and dropped a handful of these diamonds into a ring of fire in the water. Immediately, people began to fly out of the ring and up
into a hole in the clouds. Then I woke up. I was surrounded by a sweet smell that I can't quite describe for the next two hours.
The next day, I was on my way to an estimate (I'm an electrical contractor). I passed by an obscure bench by the river, and there was a man sleeping
on it. A voice told me to pick him up on my way back. So I did. He turned out to be a black man, about 5'10", with ice in his beard. It was very
cold that morning, and why he was sleeping by the river, I don't know. I took him home, made him some tuna helper, he took a shower and I washed a
shirt for him. I gave him a pepsi and a fruit juice. He drank the juice, and left the soda. He asked if he could stay for a couple of days. I said
that he could stay in my old motorhome out back. I told him he might need to clean it a bit, since my girls had been playing in there. I went out to
check on him after about an hour, and to my surprise, the motorhome was spotless. I asked him if he wanted anything, he said, do you have any fruit?
So I got him some fruit, a jug of water, a tv with antennae and a vcr with a bunch of movies. I had to show him how to operate the vcr, and left him
alone for a while.
That night, I invited him in for dinner. To my surprise, my girlfriend didn't object. I bought a bottle of red wine, even though I hadn't drank
since Christmas. Then we began to talk. He was fascinating. Intelligent, articulate and polite. That night in bed, my girlfriend and I both agreed he
had to be a holy man.
The next day, I had to ask, are you Jesus? He said he was the only one truly connected to Jesus. Then I began to ask questions. After a while, I
completely believed him. Then I asked him why me. He said, I've been walking around the US, into Canada and Mexico for 27 years, and you're the
first one to treat me with dignity and to believe me. He said, if you don't believe, you don't see.
He stayed for about a month. My girlfriend began to get jealous. She also had a dream where Bill and I are standing together naked, and we intertwine
and go up into heaven. This freaked her out, and assure her that nothing like that was happening. She eventually asked him to leave. I would have went
with him if it wasn't for my kids. During this month, many things happened, including twice where I literally saw the clouds open up and rays
streaming down on the motorhome. And one time, I went into the motorhome without knocking, and I swear I saw Bill stepping out of another dimension or
something. I quickly stepped back out of the motorhome and knocked.
During that month, I took over 20 pages of notes. Bill drew several pictures, some which I still have. He had a message. It was that the time for the
prophecy in Revelation is passed. It didn't happen, and we are in new territory. The closest thing to a prophet these days are science fiction
writers, because they can put an image of a potential future. He said our future looks bright, but we are out of control, like a stuck accellerator in
a car. He said we need to quit building machines of war, and put our efforts to better mankind. He said our government has known about him for a long
time. And God is not very happy with them, because they are oppressing us. He said Herod started a curse, a dominoe effect, or, he called it "cleave
on little". He said the only true sin is suicide, or self-destruction. He said that gold will go to $3000 per ounce, but those that own it won't be
able to sell it.
He gave me a bunch of ideas, some that seemed silly at first, until I started to look into them. He said God can communicate with us in many ways,
like your horoscope, a good movie, etc. I asked him how I should make people believe. He said don't worry about it, just put the information out
there. It's like a mustard seed that will grow. He said watch the news, and you will start to see subtle changes that will become more and more
Anyway, sorry about the long post, but this is why I'm here. Bill is gone now, to where, I don't know. His ideas continue to challenge current
beliefs, and I continue to search for the truth. The more I search, the more I believe in Bill, and God. There is a ton more, a books worth, and I'm
glad to share it with anybody that asks. People think I'm nuts, but I know the truth, so it doesn't bother me. I always thought it would be more
glorious, but I now see that it's exactly the way Jesus was accepted when he was here.
By the way, Bill said Mary Magdalene was the mother of Jesus. Something I've neither been able to prove or disprove.
